correspondent for the record. and my colleague, michael aron for njtv. we have questions reported earlier by the news director of wbgo-fm, doug doyle throughout the court pass. here are the rules. each candidate was 90 seconds for an opening and closing statement and each will have 60 seconds to answer questions for our panel. then we will build onto the next question. there is a title like that keeps us on schedule and it is my job to try to enforce a timing light. the audience has promised once again can make my job a bit easier and show proper respect to candidates by holding a pause until we end this broadcast. if you'd like to join the conversation during the broadcast, follow us on twitter using the hash tag mj debate. we tossed a coin. senator kyrillos goes first. your opening statement. kyrillos: mike, thank you very much. thank you to the record at montclair state and you senator menendez for this debate. you know, i love this country. i love america. all of us are blessed to call america home. i am a product of the american dream. my grandparents came to this country and later,
. maybe 15 years ago by michael mori interviewed in "60 minutes." this is a remarkable show available online. michael wallis pointed finger at him and said your dick tater. he said several times. he laughed and he said oh, well. but chinese, that's a shame. how could you not react? after many years people so his approach actually was -- actually make michael wallis seemed embarrassed. you do same thing with pushing king and wen jiabao. they will react first on. so we do need to know this kind of mindset, this experience. so that's why harry kissinger, you said early on it so important, defining moment, look for the previous expense, really shape their behavior. there's a tremendous plume of cooperation. spent dr. kissinger, i think he said expressed in the cultural revolution hardened this generation of leaders. how does that merit out and how they view both domestic policies in china and the relationship to the world? or is that not really a key factor of how they see their role? >> we cannot really know yet how they will conduct themselves in foreign policy, because they are not yet
. you thought michael bloomberg was. no, it's david koch. but he funds the metropolitan opera, big supporter of it. the metropolitan museum of art, cancer research centers around the country. but most of their money goes into political activities, and they are everywhere. the heritage foundation in washington, d.c., koch brothers. the cato institute when it started, koch brothers. some of you may know now the koch brothers -- cato kind of went its own independent way, and the koch brothers are now suing the cato institute to get it back to be a totally controlled koch brothers' operation. people, americans for prosperity, the most active political organization today, all funded by the koch brothers. freedomworks, dick armey's organization, koch brothers. john kasich in ohio, koch brothers' candidate. bought lock, stock and barrel by the koch brothers. same with scott walker in wisconsin. everywhere. in california a couple of years ago there was a measure, prop 23 on the ballot, to repeal the clean, new clean car standards put in by arnold schwarzenegger. that measure to repeal thos

, michael tallento. is much of the received wisdomva concerning the vietnam war. i put forth manytt new argumentn that overturn what we thought we knew about that conflict. although nothing is definitive e wantl all of the collections in hanoi are made available. i would like to spend my remaining time discussing a few of these files with you. first, most vietnam war history books identify g-man and the famous general as the primary leaders during hanoi's war against the united states or in reality, the person that was the architect and main strategist and commander-in-chief of communist war effort is largely unknown. deh, although he ruled from 1959 chtil 1986, he had somehowmu escaped the scrutiny of scholard working on out more. much of this was his own doing. thanks to an unrivaled know-how, the decision was dominated within the communist party. thus, i argue that in order to u understand hanoi's world, one k, must analyze the life and career of this man come and i do this in the book. i traced the rise of his rise to oper power from the time he is so operating in the mequon delta,w
.s.? >> host: i don't speak german. i'm not 25. people always speak to me in german because of my name, michael ettlinger. so what should someone making over $10 get tax? what percentage of their income she would be at the of them in federal income tax? >> guest: i don't know the answer to that. i would say before taxing at about 16%, we're spending -- gdp. we're spending at 24. we needed 50% across the board increase at every tax level. we could pretend that upping it from whatever we're at now 35 to 39 is going to put everything back in order. but it's not. we need much bigger increases, and i think we should stop pretending we're going to get an economic rebound. it's been four years. we haven't seen the rebound you. so the art when i try to make in the book is what more is i go to the middle-class, 11-dollar increase on a rich person is making $10 billion a year, in the case their puppy saving more than 40% of income by use 40% in the book because that's the guy who had like a couple hundred thousand dollars. would he rather have the end, redistribute or would you rather have the fight from
deliberately chose michael carr as one of the scientists to interview for my book was he retired -- because he retired right after he was at jpl. so to see that kind of transition. >> uh-huh. let's talk about the dangers of anthroto moretizing our rovers as we put them up there. i was following the tweets of the martian -- of curiosity, and ask sometimes they bridged into the adult. and it was great fun, it was wonderful, but as soon as you start injecting that humanity, you -- a lot of people get in trouble on twitter. [laughter] i was wondering about how much of a burden it is to say, oh, now this is as much our mascot as it is our scientist. >> well, i think that is the truth. and that was probably my biggest surprise in going through my work over these eight years, because i did start, as i said, rather upset when i first saw that 2001 press release. i was at hart and rater in july when it came out, and i remember ranting and raving to anyone who would listen to me who is this steve squires, and why is he saying these on sudden things? robot wick geologists, we're in -- robotic geologists,
if you've watched the interview. this is 15 years ago and 60 minutes michael wallace points his finger he wore a dictator. he says it several times. they say how could you not react? but now people saw his approach was very smart and would make michael wallace embarrassed. if you do the same i think would be disaster. they would act very strongly. so we do need to know this mind set, this kind of experience. so that is why henry kissinger said early on this so important to look at the defining moment and shape their view of their behavior for cooperation. >> at the g7 during the cultural revolution of heart in this generation of leaders. how does that bear out in how they view both domestic policies in china and the relationship to the world or is that not the key factor between how they see the role cox >> they cannot know yet because they are not yet in office. there have been instances they've made a very sharp response to that i've had several conversations with an extraordinarily subtle person raised a number of philosophical questions. if you look at the appointment it stated in the
. >> evan thomas on ikes bluff. new york city mayor michael bloomberg and news corporation executive rupert murdoch recently traveled to boston to give advice to the romney campaign about immigration policy. mayor bloomberg has a more of an earlier that day in chicago to advise the obama campaign. up next, the boston event with the two cochairs of the group partnership for a new american economy which supports immigration change as an economic issue. wall street journal executive jarosite moderates the discussion. you will hear from boston mayor thomas bonino. this is about an hour. [applause] >> so the council, needless to say, is very pleased to host a very special discussion on one of the most vexing issues of public policy facing our nation. how to develop and implement there, sensible, and forcible immigration policy. it is a topic that often is addressed with more heat than like. the partnership for a new american economy is working to change that tendency and to promote serious, intelligent, rational, and respectful engagement of that complex issue . we are especially honored to have
flipped. "fahrenheit 9/11", michael moore interviews john conyers and he says sit down, no one sits down and reached bill. a rallying cry against health care bill was about reading the bill and it was too long and all of these ideas. so, what i hope is that we can be beyond some of that and the politics always going to have some element of political procedural accusations that go back and forth. but i think if you look broad enough overtime to is such a thing as progress on legislative process issues. that if you go far enough back to our things that are clearly worse that we've gotten better at, and over time the goal is to elevate substance and merit and there's a lot of tricky questions about representations and political power that are somewhat a tractable, that overtime we are making something that works better the results and having people feel powerless and frustrated a little as often. and that to me is over all what the gulf should be. and then even more specifically now, i think one reason is work is really exciting at the moment is that technology as told change your expectati
care bill. that is, to me, where the two sets completely flipped. fahrenheit 911, michael more interviews john conyers and says, sit down. everyone was up in arms. the rallying cry against the health care bill was about reading the bill and that it was too long. all these ideas. and so what i hope is that we can be beyond some of that and that politics is always going to have some element of political procedural accusations that a back-and-forth, but i think that if you look broadly enough over time there is such a thing as progress on legislative process issues. if you go far enough back there are things that are clearly worse than we have gotten better at. and over time the goal is to elevate substance and merit and they're is a lot of tricky questions about representation of political power that are somewhat intractable but that over time we are making something that works better the results in having people feel powerless and frustrated a little bit less often, and that, to me, is what the goal should be. and then even more specifically to now i think one reason this burke
's been extraordinary this cycle. i think really impress. what michael has been doing. what michel's successor at "mother jones" has been doing. i think the story in the times has been doing an amazing coach. but the 501(c)(4) story, it's kind of unprecedented and this is not, i've worked for a lot of nonprofit. i've worked for foundation. 501(c)(4)'s are supposed to be, nonprofit and they will allow a little bit. they are not intended to be used as political vehicles. that's not supposed to their primary purpose. and the agency is prepared, the irs is not prepared to submit deal with this thing that is in their nonprofits on which is not really what they're supposed to be doing. that's the biggest thing that happened, it's just a direct violation of what the intent of -- not the campaign finance law by the textile of what 501(c)(4)'s were supposed to be. spent i think it really is complicated. i had an interviewer reporting to me how i start talking a 501(c)(4) in the start menu set my personal goal is never to mention the phrase 501(c)(4) in my article. that's why stephen colbert
michael moore, nancy pelosi. think your local college professor. you know, think the driver of the crazy car with all of the bush is hitler bumper stickers on the back of the car. think the gender studies wearing the head band at your local whole foods store. you get the picture; right? they no , nominate professions leaving a cultural imprint, cultures like journal ism, arts, academia, and america's fastest band of intertapers, circumstance day sew lay success bats. who are these people who call themselves liberals? how does such a small group impact our lives? what motivates them? i'm in an excellent position to answer the deep questions because i've been watching liberals closely for over 30 years, studied liberals like jane goodall studies her chimps. [laughter] in their natural habitats and without judgment, in silence mostly because we barely speak the same language. i've been tireless in research. i lived with liberals, broke bread with them, humored them, teased them, prodded them, and, yes, even loved some of them, some my friends, and some members of my own family. my commitme
: and finally, michael e-mails in, do you think that peer progressive networks will be amplified by the rapid adoption of the mobile internet in developing nations? >> guest: yes. um, because they're the places where one of the big things you have is maas i have cities being developed where you have huge needs like the kind of infrastructure feeds we talk about, and the idea that cities are going to be walking around with these mobile computers that are far more powerful than anybody's computer was 20 years ago, it's going to be a tremendous opportunity for these cities solve problems. just like john snowe and henry white had walking around london in 1854, they were looking for patterns in the day. but they didn't have real technology that let them notice those patterns or report them. now in these new emerging, you know, mega cities, we're going to have tremendous resources available. >> host: and we'll finish with a quote from the both map. with the exception of the earth atmosphere, the city is life's largest footprint and microbes are its smallest. it is a great testimony to the connected
